lariatCaught.blp

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A very simple skin for alternative lightning, which I called "Nether Chains". I will start off a collection of those, cause I have some pretty good ideas. This is just for a variety on lightnings. It replaces the "IariatCaught (Lariatcaught)", which is the path for the Aerial Shackles lightning.

Now that is a good idea, there should be done more skins along this line, though the chains MIGHT just want to look a bit smaller, to go with the units, as of now their really larger than the units, which I personally dont think is a good thing.

It would be nicer if the links had more definition and looked more like links, one of my friends commented that it looks like a line of hammers, though it looks enough like a chain to get the point across. The chain could also stand to be smaller, to look a more believable size. If you need more pixels to work with you can always increase the size of the skin, it will work with a higher resolution. Really cool idea though :)

Really original, I love the idea with new lightning skins. Unlike many other people, I can't really say that the chain should be smaller. Sure, that'd be more realistic, but there is something appealing to those large ones, maybe the fact that they're really clear and looks very magical.

Nice job man! How about making an ice-blue version of it? That would be nice, for a chains of ice kinda spell.
 
It's good looking and nice, but..
Type:Unit, Hero, Ward, User Interface, Ground Textures / Tilesets
:ogre_icwydt:

I was searching for User Interface and found this. You were already arguing about it up there, but the truth is that:

  • Unit: It doesn't fit because it doesn't replace an unit's texture.
  • Hero: It doesn't fit because it doesn't replace a hero's texture.
  • Ward: It doesn't wrap over a ward object model.
  • UI: It isn't wrapped at the User Interface.
  • Ground Texture: It doesn't go under a building on the ground.
  • Tileset: It obviously isn't a tileset reskin.
Please remove all the types that you have put and instead just check "Effect", cos it's LIGHTNING EFFECT, thank you :)

Very nice, im using this for one of my spells but... It seems im unable to use the arial chackles lightning in the create lightning effect action... Is there any other path i can replace it with...like... Life drain? Dont care too much if it moves like that. Please, someone, tell me another lightning path.^^
